Before Christmas, my son and I played Santa's elves and it was so fun! We bought a bunch of lottery tickets and placed each one in a Christmas card with a note that said, "Sending love and wishing you good fortune this Christmas! From: Your Neighbor." Then at midnight we dressed more like ninjas, rather than elves, and left the cards on random people's porches throughout the neighborhood. I have no idea if anyone won, but if it put a smile on someone's face, that's the least I hoped for! Perhaps it helped to restore faith in humanity just a tad.
